They seem to be grouped by continent and not in any specific order other than calling Panama "the top retirement haven". I don't think Chile could reasonably be ranked beneath Mexico.

Are you talking about the OECD better life index? I was surprised to see Chile in the list, the only country in Latin America to make the cut... The Index takes into consideration housing, income, jobs, community, environment, health, life satisfaction, safety and work/life balance. It was appalling to see that the mark was almost nonexistent of the ENVIRONMENT Issue. I can see how you can have a better life with a limited income, but not how you can have a better life with not much done in conserving the environment for the future generations. It was sad to see. Sadder even that the environment hardly plays a role in what the OECD determines as 'better life'!

From everything I have seen, the OECD is really in the international tax collection biz. I use to get their press releases. For every 1 release that had something to do with improving the life of the citizens in the OECD states, there was like 100 on why this country or that country (not even members of the OECD) needed to improve their tax collection enforcement for OECD members.
